Michael, this is an important post ... I've already linked to it on Twitter and it's making the rounds. Thanks for writing it!

I have a similar opinion:
I think that a response to the oil needs to be swift, effective, adaptable, and sustainable. Also, it needs to follow the over arching rule to respond in a way that does not add to the harm that oil would do alone. I truly do not think it meets any of these requirements.

For interested readers it is found here:

Dallon - many thanks for this - it's really helpful to have the detailed information from a professional who is intimately familiar with this environment and this issue.

Note:Dallon is a coastal geologist based at the Pontchartrain Institute for Environmental Resources,
Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences Coastal Research Lab at the University of New Orleans. It was this group who conducted, with the USGS, the comprehensive study that I have referred to and used extensively in this post. Readers should follow Dallon's link - there's a lot of valuable observations and commentary there.
